    Default rIP Clive Swif (Richard Bucket)

    Sadly Clive Swift passed away on February 1st aged 82 years old

    Clive was probably most known I would say for his inimitable style as the Hen Pecked Husband of the outragous but very very, very snobby Hyacinth (also equaly inimatable ) in Keeping Up Appearances in the 1990s

    For me the Comedy's like Keeping Up Appearances sure very very easily without any question what-soever represent Comedy's true Golden Age of shows indeed

    RIP Clive Swift

    Very sad news. He was one of those actors whose face was so familiar to TV audiences in the 70s onwards, before his most famous role in Keeping Up Appearances. He was in a couple of Ghost Story for Christmas episodes as well as cult horror Death Line. RIP.

    You have an amazing mind of info Darren mate. I don't know how you find it .... it amazes me - that is totally doing your homework mate

    It is great that you have found time to share all Clive's roles as it is in other scenarios you have shown similar info. Thanks very very much for the Heads Up on such a talented actor as Clive really was
